Happy Birthday Jan Marie!

Hey guys! I am postponing this week’s Festive Friday post, but in the meantime, I do have something special to celebrate today! This is a pretty special post, for a special lady – so read on!

On Monday, February 25th, Jan Marie Caruso, the fearless and creative force behind Flourishes will be another year older — what a wonderful thing to celebrate! So, designers from all of the Flourishes teams have come together for a huge surprise Blog Hop to tell her Happy Birthday! 
And here’s something fun… there’s a way YOU can help Jan celebrate and win some Flourishes stamps as well! Since Flourishes loves a good challenge, they’re posing this one for you… create a birthday card for Jan, and link it up on the Flourishes blog for your chance at a $25 Gift Certificate to Flourishes! 
For my card, I did my favourite thing with Flourishes stamps, and made my own patterned paper. And I chose to use my new favourite birthday sentiment in a nice bold colour to wish Jan Marie a wonderful day!
Jan is such a sweet lady, and I am so honoured I got to be a part of this hop to celebrate her! She makes sure that we all feel like part of the Flourishes family, and I am so grateful I get to be a part of that. Happy Birthday Jan Marie!
There’s just one more thing… Jan may be the head of this company but one thing she doesn’t get a ton of is happy mail from customers using her stamps. You can help celebrate her birthday and flood her with some creative “love” by sending her your Berry Sweet Birthday Blog Hop creations! Here’s her address so you can pop them in the mail!
Jan Marie Caruso
4140 Lyric Lane
Pensacola, FL 32514
Imagine how awesome she would feel, having her inbox flooded with beautiful creations using Flourishes designs for her birthday! Send along your creations, and help bring a smile to her face! Now, cruise around this amazing hop for lots of inspiration!
